For the first time the Good Pitch² Documentary Festival will be hitting our shores. 

Seven extraordinary Australian documentaries have been selected for their willingness to take on heavy social agendas and thereby instigate social change. Good Pitch² is a global documentary forum devised by BRITDOC and the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. The films presenting at the Sydney event are Call Me Dad by Sophie Wiesner, about men who have perpretrated or are at risk of perpetrating family violence; Constance On The Edge by Belinda Mason, about a Sudanese refugee in Wagga Wagga; Richard Todd’s Frackman, about activist Dayne Pratzky; Gayby Baby by Charlotte Mars, about same-sex marriage; Hollie Fifer’s David-and-Goliath land battle doco The Opposition; Damon Gameau’s That Sugar Film (yes, about sugar); and Zach’s Ceremony by Aaron Petersen, about a city-raised boy reconnecting with his indigenous roots.

The whole shebang will take place on Wednesday October 8 at the Sydney Opera House. For tickets email here. For more information on the films selected and the event in general head here
